It sounds too crazy to be true. Have young people these days truly never in their life experienced anything troubling? Something they didn't agree with? Did they go straight from the confines of PBS Kids cartoons and rainbows to the real world?
When 'witnessing' a Confederate flag on a computer results in a report being filed, it's time we took a good hard look at kids these days and tell them to 'suck it up'.

It's time to be like Morpheus in The Matrix and welcome these adult-children to the real world.
Alas, at Framingham State University in Framingham an email alert was sent out to the student body after a flag was spotted on a laptop. Campus Reform says the email came from Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer Sean Huddleston.

Basically, the 'incident' is described, followed by explaining different perspectives of the Confederate flag. “...Because southern states represented by the Confederacy during the Civil War sought to protect and continue the practice of slavery, the Confederate flag is regarded by many as symbolic of the hate that has been associated with slavery and other forms of oppression,” he writes.

“Symbols such as these are not condoned by University, as they violate the core values of our institution and are not considered consistent with our desire to maintain a safe, respectful, and welcoming campus community for all,” Huddleston said.

He then encourages staff and students who may have experienced a bias incident to report it. He writes, “bias incidents are situations that may not rise to the level of a criminal act, but still clearly communicate offensive or derogatory behaviors.”

Finally he concludes, “We recognize that bias incidents are upsetting for the entire campus community, but especially for the target(s) and witness(es) of these incidents. It is strongly suggested that anyone impacted by a bias incident find someone to speak with.”
Huddleston includes a list of counseling services such as the university's chief diversity and inclusion officer, the counseling center and the center for 'inclusive excellence'.

Just pray these students never spill a glass of skim milk or they'll be in hysterics for the entirety of their Feminist Basket-weaving Art degree and then some.
